This is the difference between -lpthread on 5.x (where I wrote the code),
and -pthread on 4.x.

Before I go and mark the port broken for 4.x, does anyone know of a port
that's had to solve a similar issue from which I could crib the
necessary automake/configure magic to have this work?  The only functions
from pthread that libtap needs are pthread_mutex_(un)lock.  I'm still
climbing the automake learning curve.

If you do, I'd be extraordinarily grateful if you could go to


and add the info as a followup to that ticket.

If not, I'll go and mark the port broken on 4.x until I figure this out.

Thanks.  And, as it's Christmas Eve, Merry Christmas to you all.  I hope
Santa brings everything you've asked for (assuming, of course, that
naughty < nice this year...)
